The Vuata Maca was a tree that provided fruit which the Onu-Matoran used for energy. The tree, in turn, was energized by Vuata Maca crystals.
Lush Vuata Maca trees could be found in Le-Wahi. Vuata Maca trees were very resilient. Tahnok were able to scorch parts of the trunk, but the dripping branches did not catch fire. When they tried ramming the trees, the Vuata Maca's deep roots held up against the attack.
